The thing is that although she is very hard with her marking and has high expectations, you actually learn a lot of different writing techniques in her class. For example, the best thing she'll teach you is HOW TO BE CONCISE! She's also very sweet if you actually talk to her and try your best. She has a lot of experience and knows what she's doing.

Ms Fofic is the worst teacher I have ever had. Going into her class, I had 95s in English and dropped down to a 68. She is one of the most disrespectful teachers I have ever met. She tortured me to the point where she (wrongfully) accused me of plagiarism and then finally I was taken out of her class with two months remaining. She also told me I was going to fail the literacy test, but I passed with a 390 so as you can see there were some issues.

She's an incredibly rude teacher and if she doesn't like you, it will show. All of my marks have been 90s in high school but this one dropped completely. Asked other teachers to mark my work and we're giving me 80s. It just doesn't add up

She was a mean teacher. Hates if you play sports. Says she's helping you but really isn't. I should have switched out of her class when I had the chance

She's a hard marker but you definitely learn a lot in her class. People don't like her because she's mean, but she's actually a good teacher! She has high expectations, yes, but not impossible. Don't talk a lot in her class and you'll be fine.

I find that most students complain about her although she is such a nice lady that takes such good care of herself! She wasn't necessarily a hard teacher,you just had to rember to put your best foot forward and complete all homework and assignments on time!

This women is nothing short of rude and disrespectful to her students and has no business being a teacher with her miserable "on my high horse" attitude. She should be ashamed of herself and doesn't deserve to be a teacher! I

Ms. Fofic is an excellent teacher. She constantly strives to push her students to the limit, improve their analysis skills and conciseness. I've never had a teacher as dedicated to her students as Ms. Fofic.

way too hard of a marker,does not allow any room for any other's opinion but her own,is completely ignorant to the feelings of the students she is meant to be helping,contradicts her own methods making it impossible to pass.

You can tell that she's been a teacher for a while because she sounds really bored while giving a lesson.

You sort of had to push yourself to improve, while stripped from any sense of motivation. She ended up giving me an 80, but as the semester went on, and especially after that semester, I understood why. Thanks for helping!!

Mrs. Fofic seems to be an intelligent person, however I think she needs to re-evaluate her teaching methods. PS, South-Ajax isn't windy.
